Every after nine days for the entire year, the image of Sto. Niño is transferred from one house to another house and the host family would pray the 9 day novena to Señor Sto. Niño de Cebu. The image of Sto. Niño is being brought around the country of Singapore especially for Filipinos who are willing to become hosts.
The Sto. Niño house visit is a practice recently observed by our devotees of Sto. Niño in Singapore. It is like bringing Christ into the different homes of the Filipinos. The house visit is not exclusive for members of the Cofradia but also for families who are willing to accept the child Jesus in their homes.
The visit does not only tell the story of faith among our brothers and sisters abroad but also speak of the culture of being family oriented Filipinos who always want to be connected with each other.
They maybe far from home working for their families but through the devotion to Sto. Niño they become part of the big family as God’s children.
